Beneficial use of dredged material is the productive use of the material by the public or private sectors. Examples of common beneficial uses of dredged material in the St. Paul District are upland habitat development, wetland creation, aquatic habitat enhancement, creation of areas for bird nesting, beach nourishment, winter road maintenance.   Books Name: Beneficial Uses of Dredged material Author/Writer: US Army. Dredged material is a very important material in civil works. Often people use the dredged material and could not make the best use of it. To use the dredged material to its best form, the use should be economically approved and ecologically safe. Regional habitat development and preservation priorities should be established by identifying target populations, groups, or communities and their support populations in an ecosystem context. Properly planned dredged material habitats can be both visually and functionally compatible with preexisting natural habitats. The character of any upland, island, wetland, or aquatic habitat is Cited by: 3.   Placement of a minimum of 2 ft of clean substrate on top of dredged material is recommended for upland habitat development projects (NJDEP, ). Use of estuarine or marine sediments in upland habitat development projects may require desalinization.

CREATION OF BIRD/WILDLIFE ISLANDS AND UPLAND HABITATS USING DREDGED MATERIAL IN NY/NJ HARBOR.. Opportunities to Create Bird/Wildlife Opportunities for Upland Remediation and Habitat Development Using Dredged Material from NY/NJ Harbor.. Brownfield.   Poplar Island, the feat of engineering that turns dredged harbor material into flourishing wildlife habitat, is now more than 75% of the way finished. Moffatt & Nichol, the engineering firm working on the Poplar Island Environmental Restoration Project, released new photos of the partly-manmade island, calling it “almost complete.”. Potential beneficial reuses of dredged material were identified in the LTMS EIS/EIR (LTMS, ) as habitat development, levee maintenance and rehabilitation, construction fill, and daily cover at existing sanitary landfills. The most common form of habitat development using dredged material is the creation or restoration of tidal wetlands.

Top Marsh habitat development using dredged material as a substrate was shown by the Dredged Material Research Program (DMRP) to often be a feasible alternative to traditional dredged material disposal operations.   Dredging and dredged material management in today’s regulatory environment can be both challenging and expensive, especially as traditional methods of dredged material placement become harder to design and construct. But there’s a silver lining to this problem: reusing dredged sediments on eroding and damaged marshes is an optimal approach to improving coastal resilience, . Beneficial uses are defined as “productive and positive uses of dredged material, which cover broad use categories ranging from fish and wildlife habitat development, to human recreation, to industrial/commercial uses” (USACE “Beneficial Uses of Dredged Material,” Engineer Manual .
